quote from this "article"

"To get quality diamonds, you have to dig at least 180KM down. Diamonds can only be mined at the right pressure: do it wrong and diamond can actually turn back into carbon!" :shock: :? :evil:

Could this article perhaps have been written in a language other than English, then translated? Maybe it was someone's high school journalism assignment :? .

I know I always look for the IGI stamp-of-approval when I shop for jewelry 8) .
